Women's club to get some gardening tips

"Gardening Ideas," "Flowery Notes" and "Blossoms for Life" add up to "How Does Your Garden Grow," the theme for a luncheon and program of the Christian Women's Club.

Members will gather for lunch at noon May 14 at Hilldale Golf Club, 1625 Ardwick Drive, Hoffman Estates.

The day's special feature will be given by Marla Daly, a representative of Harper College's horticultural department. Daly will offer tips on flower bed design and on container gardening, a popular sort of gardening for those who work.

While members are having lunch, music for relaxation, "Flowery Notes," will be played, and then Carol Conner will speak on "Blossoms for Life," her witness talk.

The deadline for reservations is Friday. Call (847) 519-9931 or (847) 891-0237.

Psychology of success

An organization for working women, the Woodfield Business and Professional Women, continues to provide interesting programs for its members.

The women will learn about "The Psychology of Success," when it is presented following a 6:30 p.m. buffet dinner on May 18 in the Black Pearl restaurant, located at Golf and Roselle roads in Hoffman Estates.

Reservations may be made by calling (847) 882-3389 or (847) 843- 1555.

President Wanda Bain is at the helm of the club. Serving on the board of directors with her are Vice President Joan Wainovich and Treasurer Judy Chin. Networking is under the direction of Sandra Light, and state Rep. Kay Wojcik is legislation chairwoman.

A social event in the form of an evening tram tour of the Chicago Botanic Garden in Northbrook will take place at a time to be decided on June 22. The cost is $20, an amount that includes a boxed supper and a reserved seat at the Carillon Concert.
